Tomorrow: Howto Windows 7 32bit AND 64bit Sound with KVM / libvirt and the Spice client

Finally got sound working in a Windows 7 64bit KVM virtual machine with Spice. There are a few conditions for it to work:

  1. ICH6 audio
  2. Spice guest drivers installed NOT VNC
  3. QXL video
  4. QXL driver (64bit)

Since I’m using Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit, I had to build and digitally sign the driver. Not difficult at all but PITA. I’ll write a howto blog post tomorrow.

  1. Why QXL video is required for the sound to work I don’t know. I suspect that the audio is sent on the same spice channel. Just a suspicion so don’t quote me on that.
